  1. So apparently Nova Southeastern University is starting an online emergency medicine certificate program as an alternative to doing a residency. The program is 1 year long, and the inaugural class will start this Fall. It is 18 credits and tuition costs $10,800. One full weekend of onsite training is required. https://osteopathic.nova.edu/certificates/emergency-medicine-certificate.html What do you guys think? Obviously not as good as a real residency, but does it get a new grad significantly closer to an ER job? Is there a place for online "residencies"?
  2. Has anyone completed the EM fellowship at U of Missouri and are you willing to share your experiences?

  5. Hello all! I am a recent new grad who was offered a position in Trauma in SoCal. Though, I had never expected going into trauma, I am very excited for this opportunity and challenge!! Unfortunately I do not have much experience in ER, but the trauma surgeon really liked my personality so is willing to invest serious training. I am the first Truama PA at this hospital, so I do not really have a mentor to ask for tips from. Does anyone have any recommendations for resources, books, apps they used to best prepare for this role? Any other advice from fellow Trauma PAs out there?? Thanks in advance!! :)

    Duties on Rotations

    I have recently started a rotation at an ER. I am being asked to do lots of EKGs, transport patients to the floor, put them in gowns, getting blankets, helping them with bed pans and changing diapers. I'm not above these tasks, but I'm just not sure if this is the norm. I'm being assigned way more of these duties than getting to see patients or perform procedures. Has anyone else had a similar experience in an ER? TIA

  9. For those working in EM that have moved from a full-time hourly rate to a PRN hourly rate at the same facility and same position, what is a reasonable increase in pay to ask for? I've been there for about 5 years full time (also haven't had a raise in 3 years). I know what other EM PRN gigs pay in my area, but my question is specifically how much more to expect when transitioning in the same position. Thanks in advance!

  15. Any advice is appreciated. Has anyone attended CEP EM PA fellowship while having kids? I have a 2yo and will need to move to the fellowship without my husband and would like to take my daughter with me because my husband's job is not transferrable. I can afford a sitter, but I would like to know what the schedule is typically like (hrs per day, days per week, etc) . I haven't applied yet, but I'm just trying to figure out if it is logistically possible.
  16. Hello! I'm a 21 year old EMT currently working in 911 response (~3 years experience at this point) and studying at the University of Houston (double B.A. in Philosophy and History). I'm interested in shadowing a PA who works in emergency medicine, preferably in the medical center. Right now, I'm trying to determine whether PA school is the correct route for me, or whether I am more suited to the MD/DO route. If you are interested in allowing me to shadow, or if you have any contacts that I can get in touch with to arrange a shadow opportunity, you can contact me at samscarber@gmail.com. Thanks!

    EMCARE employees?

    Hello all, My current ER will be under the management of EmCare starting in a few months. I am curious if anyone here can inform me of the typical salaries and bonus structure they offer. I'm currently in the southeast. Thanks.
  18. Hi there! I recently graduated with a Bachelors in Biochemistry and Molecular Bio and I was pre-med. I'm taking 2-3 gap years to work/volunteer/shadow. I've shadowed before and have plenty of medical experience and I feel that I am most knowledgable about emergency medicine and immunology as those are the areas I've worked in. I'm looking for a PA to shadow (preferably in the ED) somewhere near Denver, CO. I would love to shadow evenings and/or weekends as I work Monday-Friday during the day.
  19. I thought I would start a new thread for this years cycle. Has anyone heard anything from this school yet?
  20. Sometime in the next year I will have an elective month in residency. I am very interested in doing an international rotation but only one PA resident in our program has done this so I don't have a lot of great ideas yet. I'm just reaching out to see if anyone has contacts or has had a good experience with a particular international organization. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
  21. Wondering what the opinions of experienced providers are on the pros/cons of a new graduate taking a job in urgent care vs emergency medicine. Anyone care to share their thoughts? Feedback greatly appreciated.
  22. Has anyone been to this program? The website does not provide a lot of information. I e-mailed them for more information, but I would like to also hear from people who have been through the program. How was the experience? Did you receive a stipend? If not, are you able to work as a PA somewhere else while doing this program? I can't afford to not work for another year. Any other advice about this program I'd really appreciate as well. Thanks in advance!
  23. I have an opportunity to become a partner in an emergency medicine contract in Georgia. This will include profit sharing and democratic decision making. I have been working in emergency medicine the last couple years. I don't know of any PAs that work in an ER like this. I was hoping to connect with someone on the forum and ask how this is going. Thanks.
  24. Hey all, I'll be graduating in a week and I've been in touch with the new director of a local ER. I've known him professionally in the past and there is mutual interest in getting me to work there. The ER in question recently acquired a new contract that I've heard is purely RVU based pay. I don't know specifics yet as I haven't yet been presented with a contract. As a new grad with expectedly low productivity, would it be a bad idea to sign on for only RVU pay? Thanks in advance for your advice.
  25. My original plan was/is to get an EMT certification this summer term and try to hop on with a hospital as an ER/ED Tech afterwards. I figured that'd be the ideal way to not only rack up the hours of HCE, but also be surrounded by loads of docs and PAs that I could potentially shadow and get letters of recommendation from. I also thought it'd be best since at the moment I prefer the idea of working in emergency medicine when I'm a PA. However, I've recently noticed that a dermatology medical surgical assistant position has become available at a local dermatology group near me with no prior experience or credentials required. The job listing claims they'll train you on the job. Should I continue with my original plan to get CPR + EMT certified and hop on with a hospital, or should I try my luck at that derm position?
